September Verve Diva Inspiration Hop


Well, it's already the 5th of the month and time for another Diva Inspiration Hop from Verve! Yes, another fun blog hop, so you should have come here from my buddy, Sony's blog, but if you're just joining us, how about grabbing a beverage and starting at the beginning over on the Verve Blog?! I promise it be well worth it! We've got a bunch of Verve Divas playing along this month.


SO, how'd ya'll like that recently HUGE Anni-Verve-sary release? I LOVED it, but for this, I used an older stamp set from Verve called Let it Shine. I also used the August Week 4 Viva la Verve sketch. It's more of a clean and simple sketch and my mojo was in disagreement with the sentiment of this card and didn't exactly think it was it's "time to shine", so that's why it's a little out of my norm. However, I do like the little sun I made, "rising up to help the mojo"!

Ok, just in case you've lost your way, or want to go back and see something again, here is the Master Hop List for this month:
1. Betty8. Amber
2. Jen d.9. Amy
3. Jen T.10. Andrea
4. Julee11. Janelle
5. Sankari12. Maureen
6. Sony13. Teresa
7. Susan14. Tosha

As always, there's a prize hidden on one of the hop spots. So give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around the Diva-sphere. We'll draw a random winner from one of the comments on the mystery blog to win some Verve-y goodness!

SUSIE Q-TIP: When my mojo is reluctant to play nice, I at least pull out some papers to use that make me happy. Polkadots are always the answer.

  29. I like the flowers on the banner and cute idea to do a sun out of a flower. I also enjoyed your tip about using fun papers that make you happy when you can't quite get the mojo going. I'll be trying that!

  30. Like how you just stamped the flowers and did not colour them in...it is different and striking. I also like how you made the half circle and half flower main element.
